June 10th 2017

Our church was a interesting place to be this last weekend.

Visitors to have the service and to listen to the service too, and to bring us special music.

Have a look at what all took place.

We so enjoyed Teri R leading the lesson study discussion.  It was excellent.  Thank you.

Telling a great children's story.  

How nice it is to have people willing to visit our church and then also play special music for us.  He played and sang two stirring songs.  Thank you. 

Our Pastor... having the scripture and prayer. 

She was our speaker for the morning and it was a thoughtful time.  She spoke on Forgiveness.
Some verses we read together were:  Isaiah 43:25, Psalm 103:12, Psalm 130:3 and 4, Micah 7:9, Isaiah 38:7, Acts 10:43, Ephesians 1:7, Matthew 6:14 and 15, Mark 11:26, Ephesians 4:32.

June 3rd 2017

So lovely to have the pond right by our church.  Also nice to see the older children's group enjoying it. 

Thank you for coming to OCC and bringing us your music.  We enjoy hearing you play. 

Isn't is just great to have this young man sharing his talents with us from time to time.  Listen for the chimes to be played. 

Not only did they share special music with us this day but they also had several pieces in between the stories and readings Keith had for us to hear.  Thank you all. 

Reading of the Bible text and prayer by Olga. 
Keith lead in a very special church service - stories that sometimes brought tears to our eyes and showed the great love our God has for us and then songs to match the same thoughts.  It was very good for our souls to calmly reflect on this Love. 

Thank you to the person who brings such lovely bouquets to OCC for us to enjoy.  So caring in the way the bulletin photo is often the same picture as in the flower display.   It sure is appreciated.
